Fun change of scenery
Atlantis has devised a way to make you spend more money while out at the pool and beach areas. Almost every bar and snack stand will only take either room cards to charge to or credit cards. This allows people to just charge, charge, charge and not realize that $7 drinks and $8 sandwiches can add up to $500+ in a week's time. Only two of the more than fifteen bar/food areas takes cash.
Unique Suggestions: My wife and I split a sandwich (they are big enough) and didn't drink much by the pool areas. We did buy bottled water at a local store across from Atlantis for $2.25 each and bring them with us. The same bottled water at the resort was $4.75. We did see many people pull out bottles of liquor and and pop and make a drink at their chairs. Liquor is very inexpensive at the stores and too expensive at Atlantis.
Fun Alternatives: For a fun change, walk over to the Comfort Suites Hotel across the street from the Altantis Casino. If you enter from the lobby area, go to the pool bar. The bartenders are social, fun and make strong drinks. Prices are cheaper and they have 2 TVs for additional entertainment. Many locals hang out their because of prices and better interaction with guests and bartenders
